Despite the mixed early July weather and lower numbers at the Cherry Festival, there was a lot of interest in beekeeping from attendees of all ages. The observation hive was particularly popular, as was our honey which a number of members brought along. In fact, we sold out! These type of events are a great way to showcase our Club and provide a perfect educational forum for bee keeping to a wide audience.
You can see some photos of the event in our gallery.
Thanks to Maggie Mackenzie for coordinating the volunteer rota and to Chris Bristow & Chris Bailes for taking up the mantle of the talks which are generally handled by Julian Audsley. Thanks to all members who volunteered their time this weekend. Next volunteering opportunities are at Hambrook Marshes on 14th July. Contact Jenny Cotterill. We are also looking at a late July date in Whitefriars and, of course, there will be the other festivals at Brogdale in the Autumn.
